The Bulloch County Board of Education and Bulloch County Schools hosted a retirement program on May 17, in the Mattie Lively Elementary School Cafeteria to honor 59 retirees who have retired or will retire from the school district during its 2021-2022 school year.

These educators and support professionals devoted a combined total of 1,211 years of service to the children of Bulloch County.

Superintendent of Schools Charles Wilson commended the retirees for not only their service but their perseverance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Accompanied by family members, the retirees enjoyed a steak and shrimp dinner catered by Uncle Shugg’s of Statesboro and they each received a $100 check from the Bulloch County Foundation for Public Education.
